Every once in a while we see something exceptionally cool and this definitely goes in that category. Adobe has developed a new type of camera lens that allows you to focus (or unfocus) various parts of your photograph in post production.
As anyone knows who’s tried to sharpen a blurry photograph in Photoshop, it’s a nearly impossible feat. But this Adobe’s new Plentopic lenses are apparently going to change all of that.
We could try and explain it, but it’s easier to just watch the video. Feel free to skip to the end to see refocusing magic in action.

    this absolutely blows my mind. Imagine how free a photographer can be out in the world, instead of worrying about the minutiae of focusing on particular subjects, one can simply construct a scene and then chose the subjects within that scene later…
    This could be earth shattering for sports photography and event photography – such freedom to shoot at greater speeds, and then nail down what is needed back at the office based on where the photo will be used, or what article/etc. it will be used within.
